The guys have been loving Takaka & been living around here for almost 2 weeks now! It is a laid back town most people have described to me as a ‘hippy town’. We walked around the town for a bit, browsed the market & kicked back & watched a skate competition at the skate park. The guys joined in & were the oldest people in the contest by about 10 years. They won 1st & 2nd prize in their categories & were delighted! Bless them.
We went to Tata beach & relaxed. The guys picked mussels on the way & cooked them in the sunset. The views were incredible as the sunset on the horizon & behind the mountains. People had beachfront homes & were having dinner & drinks with friends, enjoying the sunset – bliss.
What a perfect 1st day roadtrippin with the guys.
I stayed at Barefoot backpackers* in Takaka. The hosts were really welcoming & friendly & it was a really homely hostel (although the internet wasn’t great).
